It took me a year to figure out my true passion after I finished sixth form which was of course films. I started again at college and after a year of foundation + 1 out of 2 years of Level 3 Film/TV, I then applied to Ravensbourne University in which I was successful. My professional and savvy mindset was something I required way before I started university as I knew what I wanted. My friendly, mannerly and compassionate personality I believe is what has carried me thus far with an extremely high confidence to achieve and a greatly ambitious persona and attitude. Ravensbourne has shown me the doors to the industry which I am embracing fully; I am also thriving in learning new creative and technical skills by the day. Roles in which I can assist creatives and make it my responsibility to make their lives easier is what I seek as I love to be part of the nitty gritty side of successful creative projects. My technical and creative skills are something that I have been praised for on my journey and I believe my presence in any workplace or during any project can have a powerful knock-on effect. I have an extremely strong and positive mind set and it would take something mammoth to throw me off guard in achieving and earning money in this industry. I am currently still building my portfolio with a big short-film and a short series planned. I am forever thinking of and discussing new ideas with colleagues; I am also always extending my contact and networking list jumping on other peoples projects and finding whatever work experience available. I have many hobbies outside of film including music, reading and physical exercise/sports. Ideally, any job/internship/experience or placement relating to assisting directors or producers would be ideal for me as it would be a new beginning in my journey and I know for a fact i'd be a reliable and strong asset in which I could start planning a big career with a clean and polished CV.
George has assisted me on a few occasions with a variation of photography and wedding videography work. He has always been very reliable, attentive to detail plus great fun to work. He is efficient with setting up and is always on time to a job. His passion always shows in his work as he always strives to help me perfect a shot and is always keen to try and excel expectations. Really hope to see George freelancing one day, he has great energy and loves what he does.
Dear Sir / Madam, George Leonard took part in a 2 week’s work experience placement with us in August 2018 expressing a great enthusiasm towards film production. George showed an interest in filmmaking and being on set, fitting in well within the team and helping out mainly within the production department here at Spectrecom. He was very prompt, polite and thorough in his work. He was helpful throughout his time with us, and able to work independently when required. Arriving early, and staying late (without request) he was a valuable asset to the team from the outset. George spent time working on location around London and Essex and assisting the production team in the office with shoot planning, prop sourcing and general running. He also took part in some edit shadowing. He was trustworthy and enthusiastic as well as having a helpful attitude towards staff and clients. I would recommend George in any other similar role, especially on set. If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact me. Yours sincerely, Jamie-Lee Carr Producer / Work Experience Co-ordinator @: firstname.lastname@example.org T: 020 3405 2260
